Head to toe madras got a boost this summer from the likes of Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne's Black Fleece collection. However, the full-on matching madras suit effect is a bit much, we feel, even in this realm.
Trust that old dog Glenn O'Brien to show us how it should be done. His plaids are complimentary but not identical; what's more they're obviously well-worn and look as if the fabric might be authentically Indian to boot.
We were admittedly more than a little wary of the idea of a remake of one of our favorite films of all time, the BBCs 1981 adaptation of *Brideshead Revisited*, and frankly surprised that anyone would have the brass to undertake it in the first place (Do you fuck with Jeremy Irons? No you do not).
We'll suspend further critical judgments until we're able to screen the new one in its entirety, but in any case we fully approve of any cinematic endeavor featuring so many fine examples of 1920s British gentleman's kit. And we're already predisposed to approve of the convincingly toff-y Matthew Goode, who was one of the few redeeming features of *Match Point* and has the daunting task of filling Irons' brogues.
